Interesting article about Marijuana and cancer
    #4598735 - 08/30/05 01:20 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

http://www.erowid.org/plants/cannabis/cannabis_health2.shtml

This is an erowid article, so theres a good chance many of you have read it already, but I rarely see anyone reference it. This is actually a slightly shocking piece of information to me as I have always been among the crowd that always understood (or at least i thought i did) that marijuana was nearly or more harmful to the lungs than cigarettes and it was just something we smokers had to deal with. However, this article contradicts that...

Just would like to see some opinions.

Well, it's certainly nice to know that marijuana isn't going to kill us :smile:

Now i regret I ever started smoking cigarettes, I've been semi-trying to quit for the last couple of months, and now I will redouble my efforts.

I knew mj didn't cause cancer, but I didn't know it could help prevent it :smile:

Not only that but trans-1-delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol is anti-toumoruos. The real problems with tobacco is not the plant itself but the fact america uses arsenic and radium 226 as insecticides.

anyone who thinks marijuana is bad for their lungs should do the following:
1) turn your shower on scalding hot heat and steam your bathroom into oblivion.
2) take a vaporizer hit.
3) repeat step 2 until your lungs open.
4) cough yourself silly.

i had a chronic kind of phlemmy nastiness in my chest for quite a while (and took antibioitics) and just like 2-3 days of doing that and it became virtually non-existant. (the bioitics may have helped too)

now if i could find a way to get rid of all my environmental pollution (dust, lead paint on walls....) i'd be in business.

linked to marijuana use.



i can't help but think this is propoganda though, smoke is smoke and tar is tar, assuming radioactivity is the cause of a vast majority of lung cancers, that does not mean that a chronic (pun) pot smoker won't get some sort of lung cancer from hitting tons and tons of bongs and bowls and joints compulsively for years on end.... and i've heard that pot smokers have elevated risks of throat cancer as well.

There have definetly been cases of people who smoke pot and cigarettes getting cancer, but I believe there hasn't been a case of lung cancer due to pot alone.
